President Napolitano approves continuation of merit pay program for non-represented staff
President Napolitano has announced approval of systemwide merit increases for non-represented staff for fiscal year 2018-2019, with an overall budget of 3 percent for possible pay increases if performance criteria are met.
The merit pay program applies to non-represented staff in career or partial-year career appointments who meet performance criteria; it excludes student employees and anyone covered by Academic Personnel policies. Among the criteria, employees with a 2017 annual performance rating of “development needed/new and learning (tracking up)” or higher are eligible for a possible merit increase.
Your supervisor or manager will inform you about decisions on merit increases by Sept. 18. If you receive a merit increase, it will appear in your Sept. 19 biweekly paycheck or Oct. 1 monthly paycheck.
This increase is part of President’s Napolitano’s goal to implement regular, systemwide pay increases when possible to recognize the contributions of staff.
Wages for union-represented employees are governed by labor contracts and are not affected by this program.
